Featuring the hit singles Alexa Bliss, I Wanna Be Brad Pitt and Hello Anxiety to name a few, the album has racked up millions of streams, thousands of sales and critical acclaim from fans and press in equal measure.

Their recently announced covers album, Don’t Mind If We Do, is also now out for everyone’s enjoyment.
